The Wolf River Apple tree is an antique variety that originated from Wolf River, Wisconsin in the 1870s. It’s known for its characteristically large fruit, which can weigh up to 1-lb each! The apples are wonderful for sauce and baking, holding their shape and requiring very little sugar. Walt Disney himself loved Wolf River Apples and the pies his mother would bake with them. The story is, she could bake an entire pie with just one large Wolf River apple.
This heirloom is low-maintenance, cold-hardy and disease resistant to apple scab, fire blight, and powdery mildew. Wolf River apples ripen in late September.
